How it works

How eye tracking works in XR

In an XR headset, eye tracking components typically include cameras and light sources placed in a ring-like structure between the user and the display. The core machine-learning algorithms interpret the camera feed to generate a real-time stream of data points such as pupil size, gaze vector, and eye openness. This information can be used, for example, to determine how well a person can follow a stimulus, how they react to a scene, and their intent.

Tech and media reviews

Partner logos

"Tobii showed us eye tracking inside a VR HMD that was as perfect an implementation as we’ve seen. That, coupled with the company’s unique position in the current market, places Tobii in a prime position for the market’s future."

Partner logos

"Trying Tobii’s technology for just 30 minutes has already ruined me for every VR headset without it. I’d call that a success."

Upload logo

"I left the [Tobii] demo convinced that once you’ve tried a VR headset with eye-tracking included you’ll never want to wear one without it again."

Verge logo

"You can select dialog choices with characters by simply looking at an option and hitting a face button instead of swiping around with an analog wheel. It’s so seamless that I almost forgot I was doing it sometimes — and I never want to go back."

Wired logo

"... the fleeting glance was so crucial to making me feel like I was really there, really being given the stink eye by a character, that I couldn't help but lose myself in the moment.... It's the kind of immersion I haven't gotten from VR in a while."

Unity logo

"Foveated rendering on PS VR2 can bring a massive reduction in GPU usage while producing the same perceptual quality – and, combined with eye tracking technology, the performance gains are even better...We’ve also seen gains up to 3.6x faster when foveated rendering is combined with eye tracking."
